Our Services

Harbor Cove Partners is a full-service human capital consulting firm that provides clients from a variety of industries and geographies search solutions tailored to meet their specific needs.  Our undiluted focus is on senior level executives.  We offer extensive experience and capabilities in the following services:

Board and Chief Executive Officer

Harbor Cove Partners recruits highly qualified executives to board of director positions for our client organizations. When we execute board searches, we examine and assess the needs of our clients from a range of perspectives, taking into account their governance policies, strategic objectives, and prevailing industry standards.

Recruiting a new chief executive officer is perhaps the most important strategic decision for a company and its board. The decision needs to be supported by a creative, thorough, and communicative process that provides the board with a range of excellent options from which to select. With growing frequency, we have seen the big search firm process yielding passable but sub-optimal results for their clients. Harbor Cove Partners is steadfast in our belief that our clients should have maximum access to the entire candidate pool in order to make the best strategic decisions for their firm.

Executive Coaching

We offer confidential executive coaching services to clients who strive for new levels of leadership excellence. Our client’s overall business strategy and operating goals guide our collaboration to enhance his or her strengths and identify opportunities for development. Together, we establish performance expectations, timelines, and outcomes.

Retained Executive Search

Harbor Cove Partners brings to our clients an experienced and dedicated search team. Our partners have years of experience in executing and leading senior-level search engagements and providing solutions for clients. Our clients span all industries and functions and retain us to staff senior-level executive positions ranging from chief executive to functional business leaders.

Special Projects

Our partners are experienced in conducting special projects for our clients. These projects have included: confidential referencing, succession planning, talent mapping, competitive intelligence studies, compensation studies, and the identification of key executives within the target universe. Our creativity, client focus, and sprawling community of relationships have made our partners highly effective with these projects.

“The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You can't blow an uncertain trumpet.”
